Enjoy the view at restaurants in Riddells Creek. Just 31 miles outside Melbourne, Riddells Creek makes the perfect weekend getaway for urbanites who just need a break. The pretty little town is settled along the creek that gives it its name, not far from Mount Macedon. Long ridges and valleys descend from the Macedon Ranges into wide green pastures that are perfect for lazing about on a sunny afternoon. Local wineries are easily accessible from the centre of town meaning you can head out for a tasting then return to one of the restaurants in Riddells Creek to enjoy a bottle with your dinner.
